      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with K :club: J :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, SB calls $0.07, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.18) J :heart: A :club: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks No stronger hands are going to fold. Can weaker hands call on this board? I mean, half of times he calls he has an A, so I think it's better to just check behind.

      Hi Imimba1,

      I think KJo is too lose of an open MP without a special reason. It can be ok if you targeted the loose players and you were not afraid of a BB 3bet (which appears he is not doing). So it looks fine in this case.

      Very good check back on the flop. Your opponent has like all Ax in his range and you are not fearing almost any turn card.

      You can't get 3 streets of value with your hand so it's good to check it back here (since you dont fear being outdrawn) and bet it later for value. He is usually going to spike a pair on the turn and you get some more value this way.

      Best regards
